I'm a complex blend of cute and sarcastic, cool and nerdy, intellectual and goofy. To that list, a couple of (attached female) friends have said to add the words "sweet, adorable, gentleman". Underneath it, though, I'm warm, caring and sensitive; I have no problem being demonstrative and tactile in public. I value honesty and integrity, and love to find the good in people. My daughters (now in their 20s) are a constant source of pride and joy for me.
I enjoy travelling (in recent years I've been to China, Jordan, Egypt, and Kenya, as well as bits of USA and Europe), photography (sunsets are so beautiful!), but most of all I enjoy spending time with just one or two close friends, no matter what we're actually doing. My taste in comedy includes classics such as Monty Python and HHGTTG, and satirical shows like HIGNFY and The News Quiz. And ISIHAC, which I would love to watch being recorded!
I have an eclectic taste in music, from classical (though I'm no student of it), through 50s rock & roll or 80s new romantic, up to modern pop, with rock ballads guaranteed to hit my soft spot. But please, no screamo!
I have also sung in my time, including Male Voice Choir when I lived in Wales, but haven't yet found a group near where I now live that I get the same buzz from.
Oh, I'm also an atypical man - I enjoy shopping. Just not on my own!
